Comment: The Christmas game to trump all Christmas games. A definite Ho Ho Ho from me.
OK the Book of Christmas has a new believer. What a delightful Christmas game with a fabulous background track to keep you going. I’ve played a few Christmas themed games in my time, but this one is my favourite.
The graphics are great and the animation when you win (which was often) is really good. Then there’s the soundtrack that instantly makes you believe in the big man himself. This is Christmas in a slot game.
Did it make the naughty list?
Ho Ho Ho Yes. Especially the part where the Santa showed up in all 5 reels in the Free spins part. I was obviously very good this year. This Christmas naughty is defo Santa approved. The hard-working elves at Inspired Gaming know what they are doing.
That said, the good grown-up children playing this game might not be as tempted to drag this game out of the bag after the festive season has passed. Merry Christmas and Bah Humbug!
The Safer Gambling element in this game is fabulous. Head to the menu part of this game and set your limits. All of which is built into the autoplay function. It isn’t the perfect gambling control, but it is a good way to limit your losses. Ideally, we’d want you to stay manual and control your own game, but if it works for you, have at it.
Inspired Gaming knows their stuff, especially when it comes to Book of… games and games that are limited to a specific genre. Just about everything out of their workshop is an instant hit. The Book of Christmas will be wheeled out every year. Inspired Gaming has a massive global following, and with their range of Book of… games available, it’s easy to see why.
The Book of Christmas is built around the classic scatter symbols that you’d normally get with any Book of… slot. Three Book of… symbols trigger the Bonus spins and you are then taken to the actual Book which reveals your Bonus symbol, and the spins begin. You start with 10 free spins.
Prizes in this game seem to come thick and fast. What you win might not break the bank, but it will keep your pot topped off nicely. I dropped a few of the bigger pots in this game, including, the Free Spins that just kept going.
There is a gamble feature in this game that offers you a choice. Either you gamble to double your pot in a simple 50/50 game, or a gamble for spins feature. In this feature, you gamble your win for spins. Win and you get the spins displayed. Lose and you lose your pot and the spins.
You need to manually activate the gamble feature to work, and neither option works in Autoplay mode. The rest is just good old-fashioned reels and spins with delightful graphics and a soft Christmas soundtrack that made me want to watch Elf on Netflix.
